Travel Must Have

I've found a new activity for Noah that will now be a must have on our next trip:

Crayola Color Wonder 

Most moms probably already know all about this stuff - it's art products, both markers or finger paint, that only show up on special Color Wonder paper!  My son loves to color... anywhere.  More than once, I've had to chase him down to get the crayons out of this hand, or take some Seventh Gen cleaners to the wall to erase some scribbles.

But Color Wonder?  Not a chance.  Now, I may not care as much on a plane, but driving?  Crayons would be definite no with my son!  Plus, since we rent a home off property for our week in January, we have to be extra careful with him making a mess, since there is a deposit we want back!  Another plus?  They have a LOT of Disney themed products!

I'll just say - this is definitely going in our travel bag!  Oh - and you can always find this at Arts and Crafts stores (Michaels, etc..) that always have 10-20% coupons so you can save!  It runs anywhere from around $7-20, and with sales or coupons, I think it's a good no-mess deal!

**For older kids that you can trust with markers, check out the Color Explosion.  I bought some on accident and want to color myself!! Very cool!**

Ever used color wonder products?

    I am literally amazed by Color Wonder and pretty much anything Crayola has done over the last few years. Every time I see a Crayola commercial I want to run out and buy whatever it is they are selling. Amazing! I should start stocking up on these things now to save them when my son is a bit older!
